Review: A Duchess in the Dark by Kate McKinley
A Duchess in the Dark - Kate McKinley

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

Daphne Hayward is determined to marry a man her brother-in-law doesn’t approve of, so she sets out to secure her future by sliding into bed with the man she wants to wed. Only she unknowingly winds up in the bed of Ashton Fitzgerald, Duke of Claymore. Their night together is phenomenal, but when each discovers who their mysterious bed partner is, they’re in for one heck of a surprise. Though she’s attracted to Ashton, Daphne has no interest in wedding a man every woman swoons over. Only Ashton isn’t about to give Daphne up so easily…

A case of mixed-up bedrooms can either lead to ruin or utter happiness in A Duchess in the Dark. Kate McKinley’s first By Invitation Only book is fast-paced, fun, and sexy, making for a perfect afternoon escape from reality. While Daphne and Ashton’s romance is definitely spicy, it’s also incredibly sweet and that’s what makes the book stand out for me. Ashton’s good looks are the least important part of his character. He’s kind, caring, protective, and non-judgmental, which makes him a really appealing hero. I was rooting for him to win Daphne over because they clearly fit. A Duchess in the Dark is a fairly short novella, so it’s a bit of a whirlwind love story, but that was fine by me. The dialogue was sprightly, the characters likeable, and the romance an excellent mix of sensual and sweet. I was charmed by Daphne and Ashton’s story and I look forward to reading the rest of the By Invitation Only series.

Recent Release Review! Their Bride (The Marriage Lottery # 2.5) Stasia Black & A.S. Green!
Their Bride - A.S. Green,Stasia Black

 

 

All Vanessa ever wanted was to be loved.
Okay, strike that—all she wanted was not to die at the hands of the homicidal maniac who was obsessed with hunting her down—AND to be loved.
Was that too much to ask?

 

Going to Jacob’s Well and becoming a Lottery Bride sounded like it would make all Vanessa’s dreams come true.


For the first time in her life, she’d have a family. For the first time in her life, she’d have not just one person to love her, but FIVE.


And she’d be safe from the notorious female slave trader, Lorenzo Bernal.

There’s just one teeny, tiny problem.

 

When the lottery husbands are announced, it turns out none of them intentionally entered. And they want out of the bargain.

 

*Events of this novel occur at the same time as events in Book 2 in the series but Their Bride is a full-length, standalone novel in the series.

 


“Their Bride” is full of emotions, passion and excitement that keeps readers glued to the pages.

 

These strong, appealing characters capture the hearts of readers as each has vulnerabilities and issues that hinder their relationship which provides lots of emotional turmoil during all the sizzling chemistry and heated passions of this captivating romance. Vanessa is a strong courageous woman with a challenging past that has kept her on the run but she remains strong and strives to make her own dreams come true which readers can certainly relate to and all the men easily ensure that readers want to help them overcome their problems and reach for happiness. Each of the men are different with unique issues so this adds variety and ensures that readers are never bored throughout this romance.

 

The fast paced and smooth flowing plot is not full of blazing hot passion and steamy sex scenes but it is also full of excitement, danger and a few surprising twists involving each of the characters which keep readers glued to the pages. This story references some of the events that take place in “Theirs to Protect” and continues a bit further in the future than where it ended, so while the story is standalone and can be read before the second book, for readers to get the most enjoyment out of the books, the series should be read in order due to the overall events that take place throughout the series.

 

I found that reading “Their Bride" actually made “Theirs to Protect” even better because this one made things more complete having read both books and I really can’t wait to find out what happens next in the series.

Stasia was born in Georgia, grew up in Texas, recently spent a freezing five-year stint in Minnesota, and now is happily planted in sunny California, which she will never, ever leave.

 

She loves writing, reading, listening to podcasts, and has recently taken up biking after a twenty-year sabbatical (and has the bumps and bruises to prove it). She lives with her own personal cheerleader, aka, her handsome husband, and their teenage son. Wow. Typing that makes her feel old. And writing about herself in the third person makes her feel a little like a nutjob, but ahem! Where were we?

Stasia’s drawn to romantic stories that don’t take the easy way out. She wants to see beneath people’s veneer and poke into their dark places, their twisted motives, and their deepest desires. Basically, she wants to create characters that make readers alternately laugh, cry ugly tears, want to toss their kindles across the room, and then declare they have a new FBB (forever book boyfriend).

I live in the cold, upper Midwest with my husband and three kids. I spend summers on Lake Superior, which is the muse for my contemporary romance, Summer Girl, and I’m a sucker for down-to-earth men who work with their hands (if they play guitar, that’s an added bonus). I love all things Irish—particularly music, dancing, and Jameson. When I’m not writing or reading romance, I’m traveling, camping, visiting book clubs, blogging for Writer Unboxed, and writing paranormal and contemporary young adult novels (under my real name).

Review! Alien Encounter Box Set (Alien Encounter #1-3) Shelley Munro!
Alien Encounter Box Set - Shelley Munro

 

 

Aliens crash-land on Earth, and the chaos begins…

 

Hinekiri is an explorer, an adventurer and a successful map-maker from the planet of Dalcon. She travels through space, charting unexplored territories. Hinekiri’s maps are valuable, and she has attracted thieves who covet her charts.

 

Janaya, Hinekiri’s niece, is an elite bodyguard on Dalcon. She wants to protect her favorite aunt from the lowlifes intent on robbery. The last thing she requires is an unplanned trip to Earth or interaction with the locals.

 

Prince Alexandre is exhausted with court life and royal obligations. What he craves is a slice of ordinary on another planet and a different path where he is his own boss. He needs a suitable Earthman or woman to aid him in his research on a new career.

 

Three aliens visit the country town of Sloan - fish-out-of-water - but a new start on Earth brings opportunities, second chances and the possibility of love.


Janaya (Alien Encounter #1)

Janaya is a bodyguard on a mission. She must protect her Aunt Hinekiri from mercenaries and return to Dalcon in time to take her captain’s exam. A simple assignment for an officer of her caliber - except nothing goes as planned. Their spaceship crash-lands on Earth. No spare parts available. Big problem!

 

Janaya is stuck on a tiny outpost called New Zealand. She’s going to bungle her promotion chances. And because she neglected to have her travel inoculations in her urgent hurry to protect her aunt, Janaya has bonded with an Earthman...

 

Police officer Luke Morgan seeks a quiet life. No press. No nosy reporters. No women. Just lots of fishing and fresh country air. He doesn’t count on meeting a pair of aliens and a talking dog, or participating in a shootout with purple-suited aliens. Nor does he expect the surge of lust he experiences for Janaya. Suddenly a routine callout turns into a huge problem that Luke suspects might only be the tip of the iceberg...

 

Reader note: This book was previously published as Talking Dogs, Aliens and Purple People Eaters.


Hinekiri (Alien Encounter #2)

 

New Zealand cop Richard Morgan is settled and perhaps a tad boring. Maybe he’s a little lonely since his wife died, but there’s no need to change a lifestyle that works for him. Small-town life suits him perfectly.

 

Intrepid alien explorer Hinekiri walks through life alone, eager to explore uncharted worlds and try new experiences. She’s arrived on Earth to fulfill her ambition to witness the wildebeest migration in Africa. Unfortunately, she has Torgon mercenaries hot on her trail, eager to steal her valuable galaxy charts, and a niece who wants to spoil her fun!

 

From the minute Richard unwittingly finds himself in bed with the beautiful alien temptress it’s hard to catch his breath. Suddenly he’s lusting after Hinekiri and discovering they’re very compatible indeed! Richard’s flying in spaceships, talking to dogs and fighting Torgon mercenaries in his spare time. Danger and impulsive are his new middle names. He’s having loads of fun, but soon Hinekiri’s departure date arrives. Richard realizes he wants more than a romantic interlude in Africa.

Now all he needs to do is persuade the determined Hinekiri to his way of thinking…

 


Shelley Munro - Alexandre (Alien Encounter #3)

 

Sex!

Lily Morgan hasn’t had any since her husband ran off with his boyfriend. But, where will she find a man willing to overlook chronic clumsiness, dimpled thighs and cellulite?

 

Sex!

Prince Alexandre Bellangere has too much. Sex, that is. Continual treatment as a sex object is becoming a pain in the butt. Heck, he’s more than just a pretty face and muscular body. He possesses brains and ambition, yet Dalcon princes are expected to have sex, mate and breed royal undergrowns. Determined to change his life, he sneaks from the palace and leaves the planet disguised as plain Alex Bell.

 

Sex!

Lily Morgan takes one look at the golden stranger and starts thinking “what if?” Alex Bell sees the curvy travel agent and reconsiders his stand on sex - maybe...

 

Sex!

Lily’s family is not happy about her spending time with an alien. They decide to leave Killer, the talking dog, to keep an eye on the situation.

 

Take one chubby travel agent and an alien Dalconian prince in disguise, add in sex, laughter, endless possibilities. Combine and shake vigorously. Result... a true-blue love...

 

 

Aliens have crash-landed on Earth bringing chaos and readers get an otherworldly fun and sizzling romantic reads with three entertaining stories in one box set.

 

“Janaya” is on a mission to protect her aunt but due to a few mishaps finds herself bonding to an Earthman and upsetting her lifelong plans and readers can’t help but be enamored with her and Luke when during their unorthodox and spirited romance.

 

“Hinekiri” is an alien explorer who is all for trying new experiences but when that new experience includes an attraction to New Zealand cop, Richard Morgan, she finds herself questioning her past while running from Targon mercenaries. Readers can’t help but be charmed by both Hineriki and Richard as they explore the passion between them, take on poachers and fight the mercenaries.

 

“Alexandre” possesses brains and ambition but is treated as a sex object so he’s determined to change his life and Lily is not happy that she’s having to spend her time with an alien. Readers find themselves bemused and entertained with Alex and Lily’s as they discover true-blue love.

 

All three stories share endless possibilities, superior charm, quirky fun sizzling chemistry and a talking dog which keeps readers glued to the pages of each story as they unfold. The characters are strong, easily connected to and readers find their relationships amusing, fulfilling while the fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with witty dialogue, quirky charm and exciting adventure.

 

I was completely enthralled with all three stories and found that each had their own surprising twists and fun elements that made each one unique although I feel that I must warn you, the talking dog will either charm you as well, make you hungry for food or cause spontaneous laughter, well she might even cause all three, so sit back enjoy these “Alien Encounters”.

The Box set is available in ebook at:

USA Today bestselling author Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.

 

Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience). A twelve month long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world.

Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.

 

While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby and rugby league (strictly for research purposes), and curling up with a good book.

Book Excerpt:

 

Marcel
“But I don’t understand. You said you loved me!”


Marcel stood in the doorway of his bedroom as Camille snatched clothes from his closet and tossed them onto the bed.


He didn’t realize she kept that much stuff at his house. They’d only been seeing each other for five months and had never lived together. Once he got her out of his crib, he wasn’t letting another woman leave a bubblegum wrapper at his house, much less a toothbrush.


“Don’t just stand there,” Camille cried. “Say something!”


Since he couldn’t tell her what he was really thinking—that he couldn’t wait for her ass to leave—Marcel thought it was best to keep his mouth shut. Yeah, he’d told her he loved her. More than once, in fact. But only in response to her saying it first and usually about three seconds before he came. Never once had he initiated the phrase or uttered the words while fully clothed. That should’ve been a clue.


“You’re upset,” he said, backing out of the room. “I’ll wait in the den until you finish packing up.”


As Marcel turned to leave, Camille hurled a bottle of deodorant across the room. It nicked him on the shoulder.


“Hey!” He rubbed the sore spot. “Was that really necessary?”


“You used me!”


Marcel almost laughed out loud. He’d taken her to Paris, bought her designer purses and treated her to the finest restaurants in L.A. He even paid off one of her credit cards. And she was being used? Go figure.


“I told you from the start, I didn’t want a commitment. We had a good time while it lasted.”


“But I don’t understand what happened,” she sniveled.


He did. The same thing that always happened. He got bored. All relationships were great in the beginning. Unfortunately, he had an addiction to pussy. New pussy in particular. But new pussy can’t stay new forever.


Marcel glanced at his watch. He wanted Camille and her drama to disappear before the Clippers’ game came on.


As he headed into the den, he knew he only had himself to blame. He had let his guard down with Camille. The minute she started texting him ten times a day and trying to track his every move, he should’ve called it quits. But the girl worked wonders between the sheets and that did have its value. And those legs of hers. He loved doing her standing up with her back against the wall, her long brown legs clamped tightly around his waist. Even now, he got excited just thinking about it. Too bad she’d gotten so clingy.


Marcel picked up the remote and switched on the TV. It took another thirty minutes before Camille trudged down the hallway dragging two military-size duffle bags behind her.


When in the hell did you sneak in all this shit? And why didn’t I notice?


Camille wasn’t crying anymore, which he considered a good sign.


“I’m sorry I got so upset,” she said. “You were right. You did tell me you didn’t want a commitment. I should’ve listened.”


Marcel didn’t respond. Her apology was probably a trick. He feared saying something that might set her off again. His goal was to get her ass on the other side of his front door and lock the dead bolt. At least he’d been smart enough not to give in to her pleas for a key. If he had, he would’ve had to change all the locks.
“Do you need help with your bags?” he asked.


Camille nodded.


Marcel took the bags from her, surprised at how heavy they were. They had to weigh close to fifty pounds apiece. When they got to the front door, he waited for her to open it.


Instead of reaching for the doorknob, Camille just stood there.


Now what?


"Can you get the door?" Marcel asked.


She turned around to face him. “Despite everything that happened, I really enjoyed being with you. You’re a great guy.”


“Back at you. Now open the door.”


Camille clasped her hands in front of her and spoke in an annoying little girl’s voice. “Don’t I even get a hug goodbye?”


Here we go. Women were so transparent.


Marcel let the bags fall to the floor with a thud and pulled her into his arms for a quick hug. Damn, she smelled good. Felt good too.


When he tried to pull away, Camille moved in closer, snuggling her face into the crook of his neck. Then she licked his earlobe, which she knew drove him wild. He instantly grew rigid.


Damn.


Camille grinded against his erection. “Uh-oh.” She grinned up at him. “Something tells me you don’t want me to leave.”


Women made the mistake of equating sex with love. Just because his dick wanted her to stay, didn’t mean he did.

3.2 Out Of 5 "the jackal and the phoenix" STARS
Jackal - Willow Aster,Tarryn Fisher

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

Jackal

Tarryn Fisher & Willow Aster

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Jackal Emerson has never taken himself seriously. Dubbed the “orgy king,” he’s renowned for his reputation as the wild End Man. But with the uprising on the horizon and his best friend missing, Jackal is having a hard time living the same carefree existence. 

 

And then he meets a thief and everything changes.

 

Phoenix Moyo, principal dancer of a notorious ballet company, lives a life of rigidity. When her world collides with Jackal’s, their chemistry is evident to everyone except her. Forced to work with him to steal the most precious commodity of the Regions, she realizes too late that there is no escaping Jackal’s charisma. 

 

When unimaginable crimes come to light, the Regions begin to crumble. No one is safe. Families divide and secrets are exposed, danger running rampant on every side. For some, sacrifice costs everything.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I'm not going to lie I'm having multiple issues with these books so far, and yet, I'm still mildly fascinated with them…It definitely has to be due to the f*cked up world they are set in.   It's an oddly engrossing and a disturbingly titillating prospective world that they have created here.  It could also be due to the fact that they leave the reader completely hanging at the end of each book, some serious cliffhangers going on here. 

 

The little facts of animals sex lives and courtship rituals at the beginning of each chapter, always kept me going and laughing throughout, like this little gem...

 

"Female hyenas have a clitoris that's so long it's sometimes mistaken for a penis"

 

...these were by far the best part about this book.  They made Jackal and Phoenix's story infinitely more appealing.  I wonder, though, if the Authors added these because of the play on names (Jackal? Phoenix?)...maybe so...either way, I loved them.

 

Honestly, though, the writing is not up to par with what I've read from Tarryn Fisher so far.  It's almost as if they tried to keep each book in the series as short as possible, so they've streamlined the stories to the bare essentials because both stories so far have left me feeling like something is missing from them.
